I have read about this palace during my school days. Visiting it was like reading my history books again. It is beautiful and majestic I must say.

2 visits First had a good look in the visitors centre. Brilliant presentation of the background, history and workings of the Peace Palace, the International Court of Justice (ICJ)and the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA). Second visit was a guided tour of the Peace Palace itself. Very good guide, valuable information on this beautiful building and its workings. Well worth... More

We visited the visitors' center of Peace Palace recently. I checked the visiting hours of the Palace proper too late, and couldn't get tickets in time (well, next time then). Luckily there was this center, where is set up a small exposition. Different topics concern the history of peace movement, the building, two courts that function there, library etc. The... More

This is such an important sight to see in this city of international justice & peace! The palace itself is gorgeous, although I couldn't go inside at the time I was there.

As the title says, if you're there alone or in a couple, the outside of the palace is all you're gonna see. Plus the monument to the right (as you're facing the gates) saying peace in all languages. The free 'exhibition' is a real flop (unless you find it interesting to hear a story while looking at a page). I... More

We went on a guided tour of this museum and I would recommend doing that. The building itself is interesting from the outside and looks somewhat like a castle. Inside it is filled with art and beautifully appointed rooms. There is a small gift shop outside as go to the entrance.

An absolutely beautiful building and it really does give a feeling of peace. You can walk here from the centre of The Hague or the number 1 tram stops right outside.

This building is magnificent. Has such reach history. One can look it up on the website - sometimes there are tours inside. Otherwise do come in the shop/ museum part - there are audio and video matetials available for free

A mosaic bench with two hands, a touching monument with rocks from allover the world, all names of all countries and a flame of peace in the middle, and the Palace seen from the closed gates, at a short walk from town center (1 to 2 km).
